Dewey's Readathon Update the Fifth!

Currently Reading: The Brides of Rollrock Island by Margo Lanagan (finishing it)

Total pages read since last update: 59

Total pages read cumulative: 601

Total books read: 3 (Death: The Deluxe Edition by Neil Gaiman, Gandhi: A Manga Biography by Kazuki Ebine, Macbeth by William Shakespeare)

Time spent reading since last update: 1 Hour 14 Minutes

Total Time Spent Reading: 5 Hours 56 Minutes

Caffeinated drinks consumed: 1 Iced Mocha, 1 Cherry Coke, Drinking some iced tea with mint and lemon now!

Food Eaten: Cranberry Muffin, Bowl of Pretzels, and just had dinner/lunch which was a very nutritious hot dog with salt and vinegar chips and a couple of mint oreos :p

Money going to Arbor Day Foundation (at 10 cents per page): $60.10

Progress Report: So I just gave myself about an hour long break which was much more than what I needed, so I'm ready to start reading again!! I played a few rounds of SongPop on my iphone, watched a little tv and ate dinner. Random.org has decided that next up will be finishing The Brides of Rollrock Island by Margo Lanagan which I've barely read any of. I can assure you after finishing Macbeth that it is NOT a good idea to read Shakespeare during a readathon. I found myself laughing out loud at one point because I realized I was literally just reading words and not processing any of them :p So I may have to go back and read that one again one of these days :p

Think I'm going to go read outside now and soak up the last of today's rays of sunlight :)

I CAN IDENTIFY WITH THAT. I had way too many intellectual books in my stack, and I had to switch to the fun fantasy novels in the last because because whew, was my eyesight starting to blur.

ANYWAY. 601 pages?! That is AMAZING. Keep going, you sound like you're doing great!!

Damn! You've read nearly twice the amount of pages I have! :P Maybe the best thing for me is take a little break, too. Of course, I guess I just did a bit ago by cooking some grub up for Annie and me. Maybe I need another break...
Oh Christopher, I so hope you don't pay for that hot dog with a migraine! You know I understand the need to give in sometimes, but I do worry about you! Can't help myself. :) CAUSE I LOVE YOU!!!!!

OH Chris!! What are you doing reading Shakespeare?! Hopefully you have something a little less...tragic...in the queue next.
